About this book
This book on methods of cut-elimination contains a thorough and rigorous analysis of reductive cut-elimination methods and an in-depth presentation of the recent method CERES developed by the authors. It includes a detailed complexity analysis and comparison of CERES and of reductive methods. It presents several applications of CERES—to interpolation, fast cut-elimination, generalization of proofs and to the analysis of mathematical proofs. Finally, it provides an extension of CERES to non-classical logics, in particular to finitely-valued logics and to Gödel logic.
